A brooder is a structure where chicken are kept for stimulating optimal growth. Smallholder poultry production in Kenya faces the challenge of appropriate energy source for brooding. The study evaluatedby simulation and modellingthe performance of a trombe wall in a small-scale brooder. The brooder system under study consist of brick walls and wooden slated floor. The internal dimensions of the brooder being 2.5 x1.2 x 1.5 m.A dynamic model was used for predicting the brooding conditions based...
Topics: Brooder, chicks, design parameters, indigenous chicken, modeling, solar energy and temperatures.
Brooding refers to early periods of growth when chicks require supplementary heat to maintain their normal body temperature. Generally, chicks kept in environmental temperatures outside their comfort zone suffer low growth and high mortality rates. Solar energy has a regular daily and annual cycle, and is unavailable during periods of bad weather. Hence requires special storage and distribution of the energy different from the utilization of conventional energy sources. In this study computer...
Topics: Ammonia concentration, Brooder, modeling, optimal brooding temperature, pH and simulation.

One of the most important themes of Popper’s political thought is his idea of piecemeal social engineering. Karl Popper’s piecemeal engineering is intended primarily to detect social problems and assess the results of societal policies with the aim of solving them gradually. Popper thus understands his piecemeal engineering as a requirement for social transformation. He advocates this view over and against utopian social planning.

Francophone diaspora literature reveals unstable worlds. In facts, the metamorphosis of the self would be a reflection of a number of unconventional narrative forms: reflexive territories whose benchmarks would be, mainly, at the level of migratory movements. Such a broad subject could be partially identified on the basis of a definite corpus. Two authors draw attention to this: Assia Djebar and Mohammed Khaïr-Eddine. Their respective works, L'Amour la fantasia and Une Odeur de mantèque, lead...

Phytoremediation is a promising technology for the remediation of sites co-contaminated with inorganic and organic pollutants. A pot experiment was conducted to evaluate the remediation potential of Z.mays in soil co- contaminated with Pb and antracene. Pristine sandy loam soils were polluted with Pb chloride salt and antracene at three different levels (50mg/kg of Pb, 100mg/kg of Pb, and 100mg/kg of Pb+100mg/kg of antracene) and laid out in completely randomized design with 3 replicates.

A novel series of metal complexes of 2-(thiazol-2-ylimino) thiazolidin-4-one ligand were prepared; the corresponding ligand was synthesized from reaction 2-Chloro-N-(thiazol-2-yl) acetamide with ammonium thiocyanate. The complexes are characterized by FTIR, UV-Vis, molar conductance and mass spectroscopy. The low molar conductance values indicate that the complexes are non-electrolytes.Spectroscopic studies confirmed that the ligand bonded to the metals through the sulphur atoms. Coordination...

A social network can be defined as a set of social entities connected by a set of social relations. These relations often change and differ in time. Thus, the fundamental structure of these networks is dynamic and increasingly developing. Investigating how the structure of these networks evolves over the observation time affords visions into their evolution structure, elements that initiate the changes, and finally foresee the future structure of these networks. One of the most relevant...

The term steel is used for many different alloys of iron. All steels cover small amounts of carbon and manganese. There do exist many types of steels which are(among others) plain carbon steel, stainless steel, alloysteel and tool steel. Carbon steel is the most extensively used kind of steel. The properties of carbon steel depend mainly on the amount of carbon it contains. Maximum carbon steel has a carbon content of less than 1%. Carbon steel is made into an extensive range of products,...

EN 1010is a low-carbon steel alloy with 0.10% carbon content. It is known for its fairly low strength and low ductility; however, it can be tempered to increase strength. Machinability of EN 1010 carbon steel is measured to be fairly good. EN 1010 is commonly used for cold headed fasteners, rivets and bolts, in addition to structural, construction and automotive applications such as fenders, pans, nails and transmission covers. Wire Electric Discharge Machine (WEDM) seems to be a good option...

With the increasing requirement in green technologies in transportation, electric vehicles have proven to be the best short-term solution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The conventional vehicle drivers are still unwilling in using such a new technology, mainly because of the time duration (4-8 hours) required to charge the electric vehicle batteries with the currently existing Level I and II charging station. For this reason, Level III fast- charging stations capable of reducing the...

Quantum Cryptography (QKD) uses the laws of Quantum Mechanics to create new cryptographic primitives. Precisely, this technique is based on two laws of quantum mechanics, namely uncertainty principle and no-cloning theorem. The best known QKD is the BB84 protocol published by Bennett and Brassard in 1984. Since then, various QKD protocols have been developed for example a B92 protocol. This latter is similar to that of BB84but this time using only two non-orthogonal states of the four states of...

Due to the natural intermittent properties of some renewable energies, the grid is subjected to instability, insufficient power delivery and fluctuation. When these renewable energies are combined together to address the challenge of power shortage, increasing energy demand, and voltage drop, the grid is subject to different stabilities issues compare to the single energy source.

Presently, the grid accommodates several mixed energies so as to improve power generation and cater for demand which is ever increasing. These energy sources interact with each other and with the existing grid. Due to the complementary nature of most renewable energy and the mixed dynamics associated with them coupled with the bi directional power flow, transient stability based on single source will not give the overall assessment of the network.
